Treating Chronically Ill Patients with Transfer Factor
An Interview with Dr. Carol Ann Ryser, M.D. - (excerpt)
Since 1998, Dr. Carol Ann Ryser has been using Transfer Factor to treat her chronically ill patients, and has experienced considerable success in diminishing symptoms and achieving overall health improvements among those patients. In this exclusive interview, Dr. Ryser discusses her experience with Transfer Factor as an effective treatment for chronic illness.
Dr. Ryser: "The diagnosis of a patient is of utmost importance. I perform a series of genetic testing with PCR (Polymer Chain Reaction) that tells me the specific bacteria or virus(es) a patient has. Transfer Factor helps with viral, bacterial, and fungal infections as well as parasites, and supports the immune system while treating the problems a patient has. Regarding what formulas of Transfer Factor I use for different patients, I use the plain Transfer Factor as a general prevention treatment, especially for infections and allergies and for patients with Epstein-Barr, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."
Q: How much Transfer Factor do you typically recommend, and for what kind of patient?
Dr. Ryser: "For chronically ill patients, including those with chronic sinusitis, and multiple allergies, I recommend six capsules a day, and depending on the severity of their symptoms, I might recommend up to twelve capsules a day. For children ages 7-12 or 13, depending on weight, I will recommend two capsules a day, to be taken at bedtime.
When a patient is beginning to get sick and is coming down with a fever, I will have them take two capsules every 2-3 hours, for 24 hours, and that usually knocks the virus "off its socks," so to speak. This dosage of Transfer Factor can nip a fever in the bud, by supporting the immune system’s natural killer cells.
I also treat fibromyalgia patients with Transfer Factor. I believe that fibromyalgia is most commonly caused by infections, including bacteria, yeast, and parasites. For chronically ill patients dealing with multiple infections, including CNS (Central Nervous System) infections and gastrointestinal infections, I recommend several different Transfer Factor formulas, to be taken together."
Q.: How long does it usually take for a patient to experience positive results once they start taking Transfer Factor?
Dr. Ryser: "My patients usually start to feel better within 3-6 months of beginning treatment with Transfer Factor. Dramatic results usually manifest in about one year, but we really begin to see positive changes in 5-6 months. It typically takes about a year of Transfer Factor treatment to really turn a patient around. I am specifically referring to chronically ill patients who have an average of 2-7 chronic infections that require treatment. The body’s cells regenerate every six months, and you need to give the body a chance to generate healthy cells before dramatic improvements in a patient’s overall health can emerge."
Q.: What, if any, are the side effects or possible negative reactions that can occur with Transfer Factor therapy?
Dr. Ryser: "The initial reactions to Transfer Factor a patient will experience are similar to a vaccination – but without, of course, exposure to the pathogen. The initial reaction typically includes flu-like symptoms, proportionate to the severity of a patient’s illness. These flu-like symptoms go away, but they prove that the immune system has been activated, and that it is working to suppress the body’s infections.
Regarding the safety of Transfer Factor, I have never had a problem with negative side effects or adverse reactions. However, I am very cautious. I perform careful evaluations of a patient’s immune system. I check for viral leukemia, and so forth. I am very careful with cancer and autoimmune patients, with whom you must be cautious with regard to stimulating immune cells – this is particularly the case with Hodgkins Disease and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma patients."

Q.: What have you found to be the most positive benefits of Transfer Factor for your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients – what are the best results you have seen?
Dr. Ryser: "The patient stops getting sick, and they don’t have any more infections. Their cognitive thinking clears up – no more brain fog. Their energy comes back – they can start doing more, and they can start walking and exercising again. They don’t suffer relapses. However, when a patient is doing well and they make the personal decision to stop taking Transfer Factor, I have seen relapses. I strongly recommend that a patient takes Transfer Factor for life – that is, it is a lifetime commitment for my chronically ill patients."

Dr. Ryser has published and presented a number of papers in her area of expertise, appearing in such publications as The American Journal for Diseases of Children, the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychology and Pediatrics. Dr. Ryser has been recognized for her contributions in the fields of medicine, science, and mental health, as both a clinician and educator, by both professional and lay organizations.
"Lyme Disease is a serious problem in the United States. Unfortunately it is difficult to diagnose after the initial stage of infection. I have observed that those patients who do well with treatment for Lyme (which can be very difficult to treat after the initial stage), do well if their immune systems are functioning optimally. Factors which promote good immune function include: proper diet, exercise, stress control, spiritual health, and immune enhancers. The best immune enhancer that I know of is transfer factors. I would start slowly and build up the dose slowly." Ken Singleton, MD
Independent Study Says Transfer Factor Boosts Immune System at "Unprecedented" Levels The independent laboratory which conducted the study, The Institute of Longevity Medicine in California, is recognized for its research and expertise in measuring the ability of ingredients to significantly boost the immune system. Natural Killer Cells are a critical part of our immune system defenses. The results of the NK cell activity tests clearly demonstrate one of the mechanisms whereby Transfer Factor and transfer factor plus strengthens and supports the immune system. "We believe that enhancement of Natural Killer Cell activity is only one of the many ways Transfer Factor benefits the immune system," William J. Hennen, Ph.D.
